Ted Cole is looking for information on this SAM COX plane that's in his  collection. He thinks it is an early plane maker from  Bristol.

2SAM COX nTed believes it to be a rare and early London make but has no further information on it.

Not a mark I know  so I shall be interested to hear what colleagues make of it.

I made a mistake when saying SAM COX of London. .. I meant to say SAM COX of Bristol. .. Sorry about that.

Hello Ted
I thought I'd seen a very similar stamp before, tried BPM and on page 219 there it is in that distinctive squashed circle border.Sadly no other info though.
Regards John

Hi, John,
It seems that Samuel was apprenticed to William Codgell planemaker of London in 1741 before moving back to Bristol and setting up his own business as a planemaker. .. Died in 1777.
Many thanks for your reply, my friend.
My regards,
